Verdict

Dancing Freddy was beaten only a head over track and trip last week with a few of these behind including CHINA EXCELS. The latter ran on for fourth despite a tardy start and is fancied to reverse running with a clean break from the stalls. Incomparable and Spic 'n Span look less likely to turn the tables with Dancing Freddy while Imaginary Diva's course and distance victory was way back in 2008 and she's proved better on the Polytrack since then. Captain Scooby has slipped down the weights of late though none of his 10 wins so far came at this venue.
